Real Dreams: Thirty Years of Short Stories is a collection of 15 short stories written between 1981 and 2011. The stories are from multiple genres with some common themes, including hope, dreams, light, darkness, perseverance, and spirituality, wrapped up in some novel ideas.


Story Synopses:

Vichy (1990) tells the story of Jean-Marie Daubert, a spy for
the French Resistance during World War II who was captured and sent to Gross-Rosen
concentration camp. It's a sobering story of love and loss told through letters
from Daubert to his wife Corinne.



The Ballick Eye (1988) is a ghost story about a delinquent youth sent by
his parents to live with an aunt who is determined to straighten him out. Can a
cemetery ghost turn his life around?



Evil | Live (2011) is a twist on the traditional horror story. Good
and evil engage in an epic struggle for the soul of a zombie.



The Grandma Conspiracy (2004) tells the story of an elderly woman with the
ability to predict the future whose family believes she suffers from mental
illness. The story is narrated by one of her grandchildren who struggles to
help her.



Room G-13 (1993) is a horror story with an ironic twist. Strange
sounds emanate from the maintenance man's room at a college dormitory, leading
one student to investigate what's really going happening there.



The Factory Worker in the Corner
Office (2007)
is an
allegory about a white-collar worker who deals with a difficult boss.



Saved by Hope (1988) is a true story based on an encounter I had with
an angel during the summer of 1987.



Mysterius, Lord of the Unknown
(1987)
tells the tale of the
Greek god of the unknown. The ancient Greeks dedicated some temple altars to an
unknown god. Mysterius is an interpretation of this deity.



How Little Big Chief Calmed the
Mountain (1981)
is an
allegory inspired by the May 1981 eruption of Mt. St. Helens. A village leader
must appease an angry volcano before it erupts and destroys his village.



The Emissary's Battle (2005) is a story set in a fantasy world. A human envoy
must use diplomacy to diffuse a conflict between elves and dwarves before it
leads to war.



Kirche and the Mirror (1992) is an allegory of the Church. On the day her
bridegroom returns, the bride must confront deception and illusions on her way
to reuniting with him.



Suits (1989) is a science fiction short with an ironic twist. A
child dreams of an alien invasion.



Verda (1997) speculates on the existence of a second moon orbiting
Earth capable of sustaining life and humanity's efforts to colonize it. The
story explores themes ranging from space exploration to environmental preservation.



G.I. Ants (1983) is a story about a boy's encounter with a group of
superhuman army ants who escape from a military laboratory and move into his
closet.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Best for Last 15 de marzo de 2012
Por Winleigh - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle
This author definitely saved the best stories for last. The last two stories could easily be expanded into a Novel.
There were a few along the way I would have edited out, but that may just be my taste. I look forward to reading more
from this author.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Eclectic Variety at its Best 16 de enero de 2012
Por Blaise Hanagan - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda
M.G. Edwards has given his readers a plethura of varied and interesting stories, 15 in all, from which to be entertained. And though the point of view and genre differ from story to story, all are well written, thoughtfully constructed and most of all captivating.

Plus which, having a variety of subject matter from which to choose, rather than they're all being of the same subject, at least for me, makes it all the more enjoyable as with each story,there is a new and unexpected surprise.

If you're either a fan of short stories, or if you simply like a good read, then I would highly recommend you purchase this book.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Eclectic But Lots of Fun 2 de enero de 2012
Por Nathan Pennington - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle
The stories in Real Dreams are lots of fun to read and quite a few really make you think too.

Things I loved about it:
1) The variety. The stories are from all different genres.
2) The writing style. Mr. Edwards has a more narrative-heavy style of writing, but he does it really well. (Think The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks)
3) The twists. There are some cool twists and turns pulled in the stories. Good setup, and then the surprise ending. Well done.

The one thing I didn't like as much was the variety. I know I listed that above as a good thing. It is, provided you know that going in. Then it's ok. It is truly an eclectic collection.

Lastly, you can't beat the price (10 cents per story)! I would recommend this book, and I hope the author takes some of the stories and expands them into novels. Especially Verda (my favorite story).

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Interesting read 30 de junio de 2012
Por Michael Kaizar - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda
A collection of fifteen stories demonstrating the authors ability to work in multiple genres. The stories include non-fiction, science fiction, horror, and religion. I really enjoyed this book and found each story interesting and well written. Generally, each story was short enough to finish in one sitting.
